Spiced Oat & Quinoa Porridge with Honeyed Apples


  • 50 g Jumbo oats
  • 50 g Quinoa
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 250 ml Almond milk you can use any kind of milk
  • 250 ml water
  • 1 Tbls Honey
  • 1 Dessert apple


  • Begin by putting the oats, quinoa and cardamom into a saucepan with the water and 100ml of milk.  Bring to the boil, then lower the heat to simmer for approximately 12-15 minutes, stirring every now and then.
  • In the mean time prepare the apples.  Slice very finely, starting at the core end, so you have pretty circular discs of apple.  Place into a hot non stick frying pan and cook for several minutes until they soften.  Mix the honey with the cinnamon and then drizzle the mixture over the apples and cook for a few minutes longer or until the apples start to caramelise. Set to one side.
  • Pour the remaining milk into the porridge mixture and cook for a further 5-6 minutes.
  • Pour the porridge into two bowls and top with the apples serve with a little extra milk and honey if desired.
